Shimano TLD II reels have long been the choice for anglers requiring the reliability and benefits of reduced weight from a graphite-framed overhead, coupled with a lower gear option for shifting stubborn fish.
Tolerances are tight making these reels ideal for use with braided lines like Power Pro, the oversize handles on the 50LRSA are the same as the top-spec Tiagra models, and chrome-plated brass handle shanks give them real cranking power.
We consider these to be lighter-weight TLD two-speed reels the equivalent of the Tyrnos series with reduced weight but remember that these are graphite and not steel frames.
These reels, with their ultra-reliable drags, have become firm tournament favorites with anglers using IGFA lines to target everything from Snoek to record Marlin.
Here at Fishing Pro Shop in Pretoria, South Africa, we suggest combining the reels with light, but powerful rods like the Shiman Terez range of stand-up rods or on the lower spectrum the matching range of TLD rods.
Spool them up with your choice of mono on one of our line winding machines and you will be good to go! We also offer the option of adding braid as a backing to give you even more line capacity… Just in case!!!
